Top 10 Factors to Consider when Renting Storage Space in Singapore
As the holiday season approaches, the rental demand for storage space is steadily increasing. Whether you aim to declutter your living area, manage business inventory, or store seasonal items, the answer lies in storage space solutions offered by self-storage providers. However, with a multitude of providers in the market, choosing the perfect one can be quite a challenge. To assist you in making this decision, our storage space rental partner Lock+Store has outlined top ten factors that customers in Singapore should consider when selecting a provider.
1. Security and Safety
Choose a provider that prioritises your security and safety. Storage facilities should be equipped with top-tier surveillance cameras, robust security measures, and strong access control systems to guarantee the utmost protection of customers’ belongings.
2. Location and Accessibility
Proximity to one's home or business is of paramount importance. Storage facilities should be conveniently located, ensuring easy access to customers’ chosen rental storage spaces.
3. Cleanliness and Maintenance
Clean, well-maintained, well-lit, and pest-free storage units are fundamental for customers. The overall cleanliness and organisation of a facility reflect the provider's commitment to delivering top-notch service.
4. Unit Size and Flexibility
Choose a provider that offers a wide range of unit sizes, enabling you to pay only for the storage space you require. The provider should also offer flexibility in terms of unit upgrades or downsizing.
5. Competitive pricing
Affordability is a crucial consideration in the decision-making process. Choose a provider that offers competitive pricing, especially for long-term rentals, making rental storage both practical and cost-effective.
6. Climate-Controlled Units
Given Singapore's humid climate, climate-controlled storage units are essential for safeguarding sensitive items like electronics, furniture, and important documents. Choose providers that offer this feature for added peace of mind.
Choose a provider that offers 24/7 accessibility so you can visit the storage facility at your convenience.
8. Reputation and Reviews
Choose a provider with a strong online and offline reputation. One-star Google reviews hold as much significance as five-star reviews. This is because they provide invaluable insights into potential problems and the concerns experienced by certain customers.
9. Customer Service
Exceptional customer service is of vital importance. Friendly and helpful staff who can promptly address customer needs and concerns signal an equally pleasant storage experience.
10. Self-Storage Association Asia Membership
Choose a provider who is a member of the Self-Storage Association Asia (SSAA) as the association sets guidelines on fire and public safety that members adhere to.
